Isaac Asimov

"The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom."

American Writer/Novelist
1920 - 1992

Man's knowledge of the world around him has grown rapidly in the last 150 years, but man's understanding of his heart has not changed in thousands of years.  The more we learn; the less we know.  Our understanding of technology and science has moved so quickly that our emotional lives have failed to keep up.  We lack the wisdom to function in this crazy technological world.  So some people reject technology and try to return to earlier times.  Others find refuge in fundamental religions.  A few seek to find a path that leads to wisdom.  

Seeking and communicating wisdom should be a goal of all creative leaders.  With our paintings, poems and stories, we need to help people find the wisdom to live in these challenging times.  Through our novels, plays and film we can show people the best way to find  a path out of the maze.
